The Break-up by LuisDiazArtist The Break-up by LuisDiazArtist
The tears that rusted and oxidized my cold metallic skin weren't shed for the pain of losing my longtime lover. I could have her back in a nanosecond with just a subtle whir of my metallic heart whispering a siren song she could not resist. No, I wept because she had taken with her a suitcase filled with my most prized possessions; my nineteen seventy-five era gym socks, my collection of multi-colored pocket lint, and my one and only poly-bagged mint copy of Superman issue #75. I stood frozen in indecision. One word could bring her back into my hydraulic arms and yet one well placed blow on the top of her head-bowl could ensure this would never happen again. Either way, I'd get my stuff back. Decisions, decisions...

Wonderful colors, and the bears are downright creepy.

Poor robot can't get in the water. :(

Poor mermaid has to wear a bubble just to surface! :(

The bears are indifferent and just don't care... but the robot has such a broken heart... cause he longs for the mermaid... but he knows she can't always stay on the surface, just like he can never go into the water...

What's worse is that even if they could figure it out... the city behind them is creeping in and threatening to take over the beach.

Lol, this is kinda fun, trying to make sense of it all! :)

:love::love::love:

Thanks so much!
